OCSLogger Options Defined for Lync 2013

Here is a very incomplete list of what each option means on the Lync Server 2013 Logging Tool (OCSLogger.exe).  I am still trying to learn how this tool works and am in search of a complete list of what each Logging Options does, so if you have any information on what each option does please drop a comment below so I can add it to the table. –Thanks and hope this helps someone else!

Notes:

Here is a very thorough guide from Microsoft on Specifying Options for Logging for Communications Server 2007

    Hi,

    its a BIG shame that MS is unwilling to share the details of what those components do.

    “S4” is no longer Communicator Web Access trace, but SIP trace between MEDIATION server and PSTN gateways, so that should be corrected not to spread misleading info!

      Thanks for the info Richard, I have updated the table. If you have found out what some of the others are, please let me know so I can update the chart accordingly.

      Thank you!

        LET’S MAKE NO MISTAKE – Microsoft IS willing to share THE INFORMATION IF ONLY THE GUY THAT WROTE THE TOOL WAS WILLING TO SHARE WITH anyone else ON THE PLANET. I tried for 3 years as a technical writer for the Lync team to get this information (along with people in PSS) and we were stymied all along the way. Even up to the Principal Program manager I was told, essentially, if he doesn’t want to give you the information, I can’t force him. Really? Do we work for the same Microsoft here? If I had (when I was there) refused to give information to my peers and colleagues, I’d have been roundly taken out to the quad and shot.

        No, it’s not an unwillingness of MICROSFT. It’s the power trip of ONE DUDE. (Name withheld to prevent stoning and execution in the quad by angry IT Pros.)

          Haha, thanks for the follow up Rick! Quite the inside info on this.

          Even though there isn’t a complete list of all the options, would you by chance have any additional information from previous support sessions that we could add to help define the list?

          Thanks!

          Rick:
          oh my god, that sounds terrible 🙁

          Guess if that single person leaves MS, nobody will know (not even the PSS guys inside MS) how to troubleshoot Lync tickets? There has to be some kind of internal document floating around, otherwise Lync troubleshooting is a non-existent thing apart from the SIPSTACK loggin.
